Congressman/Commissioner/Senator/Chancellor: You have the most educational, entertaining and phenomenal podcast. As a member of the Tx Legislature who lives 4+ hours from Austin, my Wife and I listen to your podcast from Woodville and to Austin. Even our Dog Shady likes the podcast and doesn’t complain about wanting to go to the restroom. I have an observation. Why does it seem that when a member of the Texas House retires from the Legislature his/her title doesn’t follow him. But when someone moves along from the Senate or even from being Chancellor or Mayor people will address him/her as Senator or Chancellor or Mayor Also what’s your perspective of the “conventional wisdom.” Six terms in the Legislature the so called “conventional wisdom” seems wrong all the time.

Congressman/Commissioner/Senator/Chancellor: As you, I am not very high on name changes. If we just had to change the name of one of our military installations, the naming one in honor of General Cavazos is extremely fitting. Compared to some of the other Confederate Generals, General Hood and his unit did record a strong fighting performance record. For instance, Gen. Bragg, at best, was average. Nevertheless Gen. Cavazos was my role model as a young ROTC cadet and eventually as an officer.His progression through the military ranks is very similar to many many young officers who started in ROTC at one of our state-supported universities. Cavazos represents the best Texas has to offer to our great nation and I am so proud that many many young people for generations will hear his name and be inspired by his accomplishments.
